Start page not sorting correctly


I just started using todoist and I noticed that my older tasks do not sort correctly on the "start page". I have my start page set to "today, overdue" and it shows me tasks in this order: 5 days ago, 4 days ago, 3 days ago, 2 days ago, Today, 6 days ago, 8 days ago, 97 days ago. (I have some old tasks on there).

I would assume that the most overdue tasks should show up at the top of the list.

I am using Firefox (v20.0.01), but have also tested this in Internet Explorer (v10.x) and Google Chrome (v26.x) with the same results. I am running Windows 8 Enterprise x64.

Hello Ken,

This is actually the correct order. Tasks that are overdue by no more than 5 days are listed at the top so you can still catch up to them. Tasks overdue by 6 days or more (which may be less important considering the long overdue date) are listed at the bottom so that the overdue list will not push important tasks due today to the very bottom.

Nonetheless, we may consider changing this display in the future and you're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/27/

Best regards,

Thanks for the reply, it helps to understand the logic behind the tasks being sorted the way they are.
